PHONE 115 Baptist Church Suffers Fire Loss Wednesda) afternoon about 2:38 o'clock a fire alarm wuh occasioned by the discovery of a fire in tho Bap tist church building The fire de partment responded promptly and within a few mluiitos the water had r been turned on effectively, and but for the promptness, coolness and ef fective work of tho lire company, un der the control of Chief Cllne, the handsome church edifice and mod ern Sunday School plant would have been a total loss. . Damage from tin- fire, water and smoke cannot lie estimated at this time, and only the adjustments of agents will be able to figure accu rately the damage sustained. Insurance amounting to $16,500, car ried by the agencies of Mayor Mc Kee and John H. Blount, was distrib uted as follows: On the building, $13, 000; on the furniture, $1,000, and on the plpo organ, $2,500. It is tho opin ion of the church custodians that the loss is fully covered by insurance. Rev. Olus Hamilton's loss of books and furniture in the church library Is estimated at $2,500, with insurance of only $300. Tho loss Is total. It was the opinion of the custodian of the church that the building was as near fireproof as it was posslblo to mako it. The actual cause of the fire is unknown. As soon as adjustments have been made the church , house will be rap idly restored to Its former beauty, and the organ and furniture will un dergo repairs as well.
